    Reb Eliezer Elimielech was the son of Rabbi Yehoshua Zambrowsky who served as the Chief Rabbi of Syracuse and later in Buffalo, NY.

    His son was a Rabbi in Syracuse, but was niftar while his father was still alive.

    Rabbi Yehoshua Zambrowsky z”l was my maternal great grandfather, Rabbi Tzemach z”l, my grandfather and Rabbi Elimelech my great uncle.
    Would love more info about Rav Yehoshua!

  • 11 YD Miller // Oct 5, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    Amiel,

    If you read all comments above you find some information on your GG-Grandfather, first here is a photo of Reb Yehoshua (2nd from right) smong other prominent Rabonim, at the reception of the great Reb Baruch ber Leibowitz of Kamenitz upon his visit to the US in 1929:
    http://www.ivelt.com/forum/download/file.php?id=23750&mode=view

    His father Reb Yisroel Yizchok was a Rabbi and Dayan in Warsaw where he passed away in 1916 and is buried there.

    Do you have a photo of Reb Tzemach and/or of his grave?

  • 12 Mo. Kennedy // Oct 6, 2011 at 8:53 am

    Rav Amiel

    your great grandfather Rav Zamborovsky was a grodzshisker chusid quite a while ago there was printed a copy of a letter that the last Grodzhisker Rebbe Rav Yisroel Shapiro(who was killed in the war) wrote to Rav Zambrovsky while he was rov in syrcuse the gabbai of the rebbe also writes to rav zaborvski that he should raise some funds for some cause by a grodzishker chusid who lives in syrcuse

    also the first sefer of rav zambrovski has a haskomo from the grodziskher rebbe

    i think that his son rav elimelech who was niftar in his fathers lifetime was named after Rav Elimelech Grodziskeher

    the intresting thing is that his second sefer which was printed in the USA has no haskoma from any chasdic rebbe or rov not even from the grodzsiker who was still alive

    i still want to go through his first sefer to see if he brings any divrey torah from the grodzishker rebbes

  • 13 Rena Turoff // Dec 27, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Rabbi Yehoshua Zambrowsky was the brother of my great grandfather Yisrael Yitzchak Zambrowsky, who wrote the Geres Carmel. would love to find more copies of this sefer to give to my children. also any info about my great grandfather, and his son, my zeide Binyomin Zambrowsky (changed to Levy when he arrived in the US)

  • 14 YD Miller // Dec 29, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    Rena,

    Yisroel Yitzchok was the “Father” of Rabbi Yehoshua, not a “Brother”.

    Reb Yisroel Yitzchak was a Dayan (Rabbinical Judge) in Warsaw where he passed away in 1926, see here a photo of his Grave in Warsaw and the grave of another son of his Nathan Nuta Zambrowsky.

    To the family of Rabbi Yehoshua Zambrowsky — we have started a group for people with a connection to the 15th Ward in Syracuse, New York, the neighborhood where the Hebrew Free School was located. Several students of the school are on the group. There are several members who may have known your family. Email me to join.

    I am privileged to have an original copy of my great grandfathers Rav Yehoshua Zambrowsky’s commentary on tehillim called Ateret Yehoshua released in 1907. New copies are available on amazon but this is mamash a family treasure!

  • 24 Amiel Bender // Jul 30, 2015 at 11:51 am

    What was the name of the Sefer written in the USA without the haskamos

  • 25 Amiel Bender // Jul 22, 2016 at 12:32 am

    Apparently the first sefer that Harav Yehoshua Halevi wrote was called “Gevulei Yehoshua”.
    I have tried to find it on Hebrewbooks.org with no success. Does anyone know about this sefer?

  • 26 m.kennedy // Jul 22, 2016 at 10:09 am

    Amiel which sefer has the haskomes of the leading eastern European rabbis

  • 27 m.kennedy // Jul 22, 2016 at 10:22 am

    mr bender in the sefer chedas yeshoua he has no haskomos from eastern European rabbis only from American and rav kuk

    he was a grodzhisker chusid no haskoma from the rebbe who was still alive in Warsaw Poland

    it is interesting

  • 28 m.kennedy // Jul 22, 2016 at 10:27 am

    by the way look at the title he gives in his sefer Ateret Yehoshua to his rebbe the grodzisker the question in my previous post becomes bigger
